    Damn that George Bush. When is he going to quit blowing out the budget. Ain't that right AK? Oh wait - Harry Reid hasn't passed a budget for 4 years so there really isn't a yearly deficit! Problem solved. :D

    The U.S. federal government's budget deficit widened in November compared to October, a sign that the nation is on a path to its fifth straight $1 trillion-plus deficit.

    The budget gap rose to $172 billion in November, up from $120 billion in October, the Treasury Department said Wednesday. The November deficit was also 25 percent higher than the same month last year. Last month's deficit was pushed higher by a calendar quirk that pulled about $33 billion in benefits payments into November from December.

    The government finished the 2012 budget year with a deficit of $1.1 trillion.
